Dragonfly cushion 


I’ve completed more along the top. Back to school has been very tricky, wrong time tables , rooms, lost students & students in your lesson not on your list, but it is good to be back in many ways. It feels like I didn’t have a holiday & it’s only one week back. I get my day off this week & I have less lessons to teach, it is probably going to be nicknamed ‘short week’. I have baseline tests to mark this week. Welcome back !


What’s on my frame.


Canvas stitches, still working through them, I have now turned the frame round & started working on the other end, I have only done a couple to nothing much at that end yet. 

My school planner is finished & I’ve been doing a fair amount of planning this week

Yes the school bags are out Luna is guarding them. Next week I’m in school every day ( I have training on my day off☹️). She will be watching at the window all next week for me to come home, the second week she won’t even bother to get up & see me off & by the end of September she will know my work pattern better than me. 

Geek blanket 


During my recent big tidy up I found some large double knitting squares, form a KAL a few years ago, I can’t remember who hosted it, but I only completed a small number of squares. 

Mum very kindly crocheted around the outside for me & made up the ‘geek blanket ‘ . Thanks Mum😁. Stephen thinks it belongs to him, but I’m sure Luna has been eyeing it up for winter. 

The squares are Cathulu, Dr Who, Harry Potter Huffelpuff, Marvel agents of shield, Batman, Harry Potter Ravenclaw, Star Wars, hitch hiker’s guide to the galaxy, Buffy.

SAL: zodiac sampler finished


The last one is finished😁

The whole thing.

Is has been installed in my kitchen, between the fridge freezer & the back door. I managed to squeeze my ‘wheel of the year ‘ prints in too, I glad they fitted into the space as they have been sitting on s shelf for a couple of years after redecorating ( they didn’t fit in with the colour scheme)

Please have a look at what the others have been working on.

School planner :1


I’ve finished the front cover, of my teacher planner, I’ve got a smaller A5 one this year, so I need a new one🤗. I’m now working on the back. 

Still tidying in doors, the oddest things found in the Kitchen, was several packets of gate fixings ( hooks & eyes) & geology rock sample. I’ve decided to set a side a small cupboard for his wheat/ gluten containing things, to try & cut down on cross contamination.  I’ve been tidying all over the house, getting rid of lots of clutter. I might even be tidy in each room!! 

Found projects


The school summer holidays are a time for sorting things out ( & prepping for next year😐, yes I made a start this week). 

Organising my craft & school space/ box room, I came across this project I must have started it about 10 years ago, I found at least another 3 tapestry kits ( enough said), this was the most completed, so I thought I would work on it, I think I may have worked on it a few years ago, when it last surfaced. 

I’m working on the top lilac at the moment. 

I also found a part finished quilt ( block a month) it looks like I might have all the fabric & instructions. I’ve probably finished about 1/3 , it needs part unpicking & then it would be Ok. So I’m still thinking about that one at the moment. 

Tomorrow I ‘do’ the kitchen 😲, it needs a real reorganise & tidying. Friday is bin & recycling day, so all the rubbish can go straight away. I wonder if I will find anything odd lurking in the back of the cupboards.
